    it's my understanding you can carry in your glovebox or any closed container in your vehicle without a permit
    but double check that to make sure
    gun control is being able to hit your target

    You better read between the lines as LEO's are not clear that's why I have the book and not just the Fl. Statute.

    The book is worth every penny! It cover's a wide range of issues on Fl. law as it is used in a practical sense. So buy it you will not regret it.

    It can also be carried, really, any place in the car if its in a secure container. A secure container is defined by Florida statute as a holster, zippered gun pouch, gun box (like the one it came in from the factory), glove box, or center console. A great web site that I use regularly is USA Carry - Your #1 Concealed Carry Resource and Community

    It is lawfull to carry a handgun in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle in Florida without a license IF it is concealed, securely encased and otherwise not readily accessible for immediate use. All three definitions can be found in F.S. 79.001; Definitions.

    However. Nothing in the statute prohibits the carrying of a legal firearm OTHER than a handgun ANYWHERE in the passenger compartment of the vehicle if the firearms is beng carried for a lawful purpose like self defense. God Bless America!!!
